Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China: 
Final Results and Final Rescission in Part

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On February 10, 2011, the Department of Commerce (Department) 
published in the Federal Register its preliminary results of the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom 
furniture (WBF) from the People's Republic of China (PRC), covering the 
period January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009.\1\ We gave interested 
parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results. After 
reviewing the interested parties' comments, we made changes to our 
calculations for these final results of the review. The final dumping 
margins for this review are listed in the ``Final Results of the 
Review'' section below.

China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
and Intent to Rescind Review in Part, 76 FR 7534 (February 10, 2011) 
(Preliminary Results).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
DATES: Effective Date: August 11, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeff Pedersen or Rebecca Pandolph, AD/
CVD Operations, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
2769 and (202) 482-3627, respectively.

Background

    On March 11, 2011, the Department issued a memorandum finding that 
Dalian Huafeng Furniture Group Co., Ltd. (Huafeng) is the successor-in-
interest to Dalian Huafeng Furniture Co., Ltd. for purposes of this 
proceeding and for the application of the antidumping law.
    Between March 14, 2011, and March 22, 2011, Petitioners,\2\ 
Huafeng, Dongguan Great Reputation Furniture Co., Ltd., Home Meridian 
International, Inc, d/b/a Samuel Lawrence Furniture Co. and Pulaski 
Furniture Company (Home Meridian), Import Services, Inc., Hooker 
Furniture Corporation, Nantong Yangzi Furniture Co., Ltd. (Nantong 
Yangzi), and Dongguan Cambridge Furniture Co., Ltd. and Glory Oceanic 
Co., Ltd. (collectively Cambridge), Butler Woodcrafters, Inc., Barry 
Imports East Corp., and Zhangjiagang Zheng Yan Decoration Co., Ltd. 
(ZYD), submitted case briefs to the Department. On March 24, 2011, the 
Department rejected a portion of Huafeng's case brief due to the 
inclusion of untimely new factual information. On March 25, 2011, 
Huafeng resubmitted its case brief with the new factual information 
excluded. On March 28, 2011, Petitioners, Huafeng, Home Meridian, 
Import Services, Inc., Nantong Yangzi, and Cambridge filed rebuttal 
briefs with the Department.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Petitioners are the American Furniture Manufactures 
Committee for Legal Trade and Vaughan-Bassett Furniture Company, 
Inc. (Petitioners).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On March 7, 2011, the Department received surrogate value (SV) 
information from interested parties and placed SV information for truck 
freight on the record.\3\ On March 17, 2011, Petitioners filed 
information with the Department which they claimed rebutted, clarified, 
or corrected SV information placed on the record after the Preliminary 
Results of the review were issued. On March 21, 2011, the

[[Page 49730]]

Department requested that interested parties withhold comments 
regarding the SV for truck freight from their case briefs because it 
was considering whether to accept Petitioners' March 17, 2011, rebuttal 
SV submission. On April 18, 2011, the Department rejected a portion of 
Petitioners' March 17, 2011, rebuttal SV submission but allowed 
Petitioners to refile the submission without the rejected information. 
Petitioners submitted a redacted version of their March 17, 2011, 
rebuttal SV submission on April 19, 2011. On April 18, 2011, the 
Department extended the deadline for case and rebuttal briefs regarding 
the valuation of truck freight until April 21, 2011, and April 25, 
2011, respectively. On April 21, 2011, the Department received a case 
brief regarding truck freight from Petitioners. On April 25, 2011, 
Huafeng submitted a rebuttal brief regarding truck freight.

explaining its decision in the Preliminary Results not to extend the 
time for Petitioners to withdraw their request for a review of ZYD.\4\ 
On May 25, 2011, ZYD commented on this post preliminary memorandum.

drawers lined with felt or felt-like material, at least one side 
door (whether or not the door is lined with felt or felt-like 
material), with necklace hangers, and a flip-top lid with inset 
mirror. See Issues and Decision Memorandum from Laurel LaCivita to 
Laurie Parkhill, Office Director, concerning ``Jewelry Armoires and 
Cheval Mirrors in the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Wooden 
Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China,'' dated 
August 31, 2004. See also Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's 
Republic of China: Final Changed Circumstances Review, and 
Determination To Revoke Order in Part, 71 FR 38621 (July 7, 2006).
    \21\ Cheval mirrors are any framed, tiltable mirror with a 
height in excess of 50 inches that is mounted on a floor-standing, 
hinged base. Additionally, the scope of the order excludes 
combination cheval mirror/jewelry cabinets. The excluded merchandise 
is an integrated piece consisting of a cheval mirror, i.e., a framed 
tiltable mirror with a height in excess of 50 inches, mounted on a 
floor-standing, hinged base, the cheval mirror serving as a door to 
a cabinet back that is integral to the structure of the mirror and 
which constitutes a jewelry cabinet line with fabric, having 
necklace and bracelet hooks, mountings for rings and shelves, with 
or without a working lock and key to secure the contents of the 
jewelry cabinet back to the cheval mirror, and no drawers anywhere 
on the integrated piece. The fully assembled piece must be at least 
50 inches in height, 14.5 inches in width, and 3 inches in depth. 
See Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China: 
Final Changed Circumstances Review and Determination To Revoke Order 
in Part, 72 FR 948 (January 9, 2007).
    \22\ Metal furniture parts and unfinished furniture parts made 
of wood products (as defined above) that are not otherwise 
specifically named in this scope (i.e., wooden headboards for beds, 
wooden footboards for beds, wooden side rails for beds, and wooden 
canopies for beds) and that do not possess the essential character 
of wooden bedroom furniture in an unassembled, incomplete, or 
unfinished form. Such parts are usually classified under HTSUS 
subheadings 9403.90.7005, 9403.90.7010, or 9403.90.7080.
    \23\ Upholstered beds that are completely upholstered, i.e., 
containing filling material and completely covered in sewn genuine 
leather, synthetic leather, or natural or synthetic decorative 
fabric. To be excluded, the entire bed (headboards, footboards, and 
side rails) must be upholstered except for bed feet, which may be of 
wood, metal, or any other material and which are no more than nine 
inches in height from the floor. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from 
the People's Republic of China: Final Results of Changed 
Circumstances Review and Determination to Revoke Order in Part, 72 
FR 7013 (February 14, 2007).
    \24\ To be excluded the toy box must: (1) Be wider than it is 
tall; (2) have dimensions within 16 inches to 27 inches in height, 
15 inches to 18 inches in depth, and 21 inches to 30 inches in 
width; (3) have a hinged lid that encompasses the entire top of the 
box; (4) not incorporate any doors or drawers; (5) have slow-closing 
safety hinges; (6) have air vents; (7) have no locking mechanism; 
and (8) comply with American Society for Testing and Materials 
(``ASTM'') standard F963-03. Toy boxes are boxes generally designed 
for the purpose of storing children's items such as toys, books, and 
playthings. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic 
of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review and 
Determination to Revoke Order in Part, 74 FR 8506 (February 25, 
2009). Further, as determined in the scope ruling memorandum 
``Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China: 
Scope Ruling on a White Toy Box,'' dated July 6, 2009, the 
dimensional ranges used to identify the toy boxes that are excluded 
from the wooden bedroom furniture order apply to the box itself 
rather than the lid.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Imports of subject merchandise are classified under subheadings 
9403.50.9042 and 9403.50.9045 \25\ of the U.S. Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule (``HTSUS'') as ``wooden * * * beds'' and under subheading 
9403.50.9080 of the HTSUS as ``other * * * wooden furniture of a kind 
used in the bedroom.'' In addition, wooden headboards for beds, wooden 
footboards for beds, wooden side rails for beds, and wooden canopies 
for beds may also be entered under subheading 9403.50.9042 or 
9403.50.9045 of the HTSUS as ``parts of wood.'' Subject merchandise may 
also be entered under subheadings 9403.50.9041 or 9403.60.8081.\26\ 
Further, framed glass mirrors may be entered under subheading 
7009.92.1000\27\ or 7009.92.5000 of the HTSUS as ``glass mirrors * * * 
framed.'' The order covers all WBF meeting the above description, 
regardless of tariff classification. Although the HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description 
of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \25\ These HTSUS numbers, as well as the numbers in footnote 20, 
reflect the HTSUS numbers currently in effect. These numbers differ 
from those used in the last completed antidumping duty 
administrative review of WBF from the PRC because the HTSUS has been 
revised.
    \26\ These HTSUS numbers were added to the scope in the 2009 
Annual New Shipper Review of the proceeding. See Wooden Bedroom 
Furniture from the People's Republic of China: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 76 FR 9747 (February 22, 
2011).

Separate Rates

Companies Granted Separate Rates in the Preliminary Results

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that the following 
companies demonstrated their eligibility for separate-rate status: (1) 
Huafeng; (2) Baigou Crafts Factory of Fengkai; (3) Dongguan Bon Ten 
Furniture Co., Ltd.; (4) Dongguan Kin Feng Furniture Co., Ltd.; (5) 
Dongguan Singways Furniture Co., Ltd.; (6) Dongguan Sunshine Furniture 
Co., Ltd.; (7) Hong Kong Da Zhi Furniture Co., Ltd., Dongguan Grand 
Style Furniture Co., Ltd.; (8) Longkou Huangshan Furniture Factory; (9) 
Nanhai Baiyi Woodwork Co. Ltd.; (10) Nanjing Nanmu Furniture Co., Ltd.; 
(11) Season Furniture Manufacturing Co., Season Industrial Development 
Co.; (12) Shenyang Shining Dongxing Furniture Co., Ltd.; (13) Shenzhen 
Shen Long Hang Industry Co., Ltd.; (14) Wanhengtong Nueevder 
(Furniture) Manufacture Co., Ltd., Dongguan Wanengtong Industry Co., 
Ltd.; (15) Xilinmen Furniture Co., Ltd.; (16) Zhangjiagang Zheng Yan 
Decoration Co. Ltd., and (17) Zhangjiang Sunwin Arts & Crafts Co., Ltd. 
For these final results,

[[Page 49732]]

we continue to find that evidence placed on the record of this review 
demonstrates that these companies provided information that shows both 
a de jure and de facto absence of government control with respect to 
their respective exports of the merchandise under review and, thus, 
these companies are eligible for separate-rate status.
    With respect to the following companies that were not selected for 
individual examination in this review we continue to find they should 
be granted a separate rate because they are wholly owned by individuals 
or companies located in a market economy: (1) Cheng Meng Furniture 
(PTE) Ltd., Cheng Meng Decoration & Furniture (Suzhou) Co., Ltd.; (2) 
COE, Ltd; (3) Dongguan Hero Way Woodwork Co., Ltd., Dongguan Da Zhong 
Woodwork Co., Ltd., Hero Way Enterprises Ltd., Well Earth International 
Ltd.; (4) Dongguan Liaobushangdun Huada Furniture Factory, Great Rich 
(HK) Enterprise Co., Ltd.; (5) Eurosa (Kunshan) Co., Ltd., Eurosa 
Furniture Co., (PTE) Ltd.; (6) Garri Furniture (Dong Guan) Co., Ltd., 
Molabile International, Inc. Weei Geo Enterprise Co., Ltd.; (7) Hualing 
Furniture (China) Co., Ltd., Tony House Manufacture (China) Co., Ltd., 
Buysell Investments Ltd., Tony House Industries Co., Ltd.; (8) Jardine 
Enterprise, Ltd.; (9) Winny Overseas, Ltd; (10) Meikangchi (Nantong) 
Furniture Company Ltd.; and (11) Zhong Shan Fullwin Furniture Co., Ltd. 
As wholly foreign-owned companies, we have no evidence indicating that 
these companies are under the control of the PRC government. Therefore, 
a separate-rate analysis is not necessary to determine whether these 
companies are independent from government control.\28\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \28\ See Preliminary Results; see also Notice of Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Creatine Monohydrate 
From the People's Republic of China, 64 FR 71104-05 (December 20, 
1999) (where the Department determined that a respondent that was 
wholly foreign-owned qualified for a separate rate).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Since the Preliminary Results, the only comments received regarding 
our separate rate determinations were from parties noting that the 
Department failed to mention Dongguan Cambridge Furniture Co., Ltd., 
Glory Oceanic Co., Ltd. and Dongguan Great Reputation Furniture Co., 
Ltd. in its preliminary separate rate determination. Parties claimed 
that the Department apparently overlooked the separate rate submissions 
by these companies. We agree that in the Preliminary Results, we 
inadvertently omitted Dongguan Cambridge Furniture Co., Ltd., Glory 
Oceanic Co., Ltd. and Dongguan Great Reputation Furniture Co., Ltd. 
from the list of companies that had demonstrated their eligibility to 
receive a separate rate.\29\ Therefore, for the final results, we have 
granted these companies a separate rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \29\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 15.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Companies Not Providing Separate Rate Certifications or Applications

    In the Preliminary Results, we stated that the following nine 
companies or company groupings for which the Department initiated the 
instant review did not provide a separate rate certification or 
application and therefore have not demonstrated their eligibility for 
separate rate status in this administrative review:

 Dongguan Creation Furniture Co., Ltd., Creation Industries 
Co., Ltd.
 Foshan Guanqiu Furniture Co., Ltd.
 Jiangsu Weifu Group Fullhouse Furniture Mfg. Corp.
 Link Silver Ltd. (V.I.B.), Forward Win Enterprises Company 
Limited, Dongguan Haoshun Furniture Ltd.
 Nantong Yushi Furniture Co., Ltd.
 Shanghai Aosen Furniture Co., Ltd.
 Shenzhen Xiande Furniture Factory
 Tarzan Furniture Industries, Ltd., Samso Industries Ltd.
 Tianjin Master Home Furniture

    In the Preliminary Results, we also found that (1) Nantong Yangzi, 
(2) Zhongshan Gainwell Furniture Co., Ltd., and (3) Dongguan Landmark 
Furniture Products Ltd. shipped subject merchandise during the POR, had 
not filed separate rate certifications or applications and thus we 
treated these companies as part of the PRC-wide entity. Since the 
Preliminary Results, aside from Nantong Yangzi,\30\ no interested 
parties submitted comments regarding the companies listed above. In 
Comment 14 of the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum, we 
addressed Nantong Yangzi's comments and determined not to rescind the 
review with respect to Nantong Yangzi. Therefore, for the final 
results, we continue to treat these entities as part of the PRC-Wide 
entity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \30\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 14.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adverse Facts Available (AFA)

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that in accordance with 
sections 776(a)(2)(A) and (C) and 776(b) of the Act, the use of AFA is 
appropriate for the PRC-wide entity. The Department assigned a dumping 
margin of 216.01 percent, the highest rate on the record of any segment 
of the proceeding to all companies that are part of the PRC-wide 
entity, as AFA.\31\ No interested party commented on this determination 
regarding the PRC-wide entity and we have made no changes from our 
Preliminary Results with respect to this issue.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \31\ See Preliminary Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Also in the Preliminary Results, we determined that Huafeng failed 
to report certain sales and thus withheld necessary information within 
the meaning of section 776(a)(2)(A) of the Act and failed to act to the 
best of its ability to comply with the Department's requests for 
information within the meaning of section 776(b) of the Act. We 
therefore applied a dumping margin based on AFA to Huafeng's unreported 
sales, pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act. As partial AFA, we 
applied to the unreported sales a margin of 216.01 percent. Parties 
commented both on our decision to apply AFA and on our choice of the 
AFA rate applied to Huafeng. After considering these comments, we have 
continued to apply to Huafeng's unreported sales an AFA margin of 
216.01 percent.\32\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \32\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Corroboration of Secondary Information

    Section 776(c) of the Act provides that, when the Department relies 
on secondary information rather than on information obtained in the 
course of an investigation or review, it shall, to the extent 
practicable, corroborate that information from independent sources that 
are reasonably at its disposal. Secondary information is defined as 
information derived from the petition that gave rise to the 
investigation or review, the final determination concerning the subject 
merchandise, or any previous review under section 751 of the Act 
concerning the subject merchandise.\33\ To corroborate means that the 
Department will satisfy itself that the secondary information to be

    The 216.01 AFA rate that the Department is using in this review is 
a company-specific rate calculated in the 2004-2005 New Shipper Review 
of the WBF order.\37\ No additional information has been presented in 
the current review which calls into question the reliability of this 
secondary information. Thus, we have determined that this secondary 
information continues to be reliable. With respect to the relevance 
aspect of corroboration, the Department will consider information 
reasonably at its disposal to determine whether a margin continues to 
have relevance. Where circumstances indicate that the selected margin 
is not appropriate as AFA, the Department will disregard the margin and 
determine an appropriate margin.\38\ Similarly, the Department does not 
apply a margin that has been discredited.\39\ To assess the relevancy 
of the rate used, the Department compared the transaction-specific 
margins calculated for Huafeng in the instant administrative review 
with the 216.01 percent rate calculated in the 2004-2005 New Shipper 
Review and found that the 216.01 percent margin was within the range of 
the calculated margins on the record of the instant administrative 
review. Because the dumping margins used to corroborate the AFA rate 
are not unusually high dumping margins relative to the calculated rates 
determined for the cooperating respondent, the Department is satisfied 
that the dumping margins used for corroborative purposes reflect 
commercial reality because they are based upon real transactions that 
occurred during the POR and were subject to verification by the 
Department.\40\

facts available) because the margin was based on another company's 
uncharacteristic business expense resulting in an unusually high 
margin).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Since the 216.01 percent margin is within the range of transaction-
specific margins on the record of this administrative review, the 
Department has determined that the 216.01 percent margin continues to 
be relevant for use as an AFA rate for the PRC-wide entity in this 
administrative review. Also, because this rate is within the range of 
Huafeng's transaction-specific margins in this review, we find the rate 
relevant to Huafeng's unreported sales.
    As the adverse margin is both reliable and relevant, the Department 
has determined that it has probative value. Accordingly, the Department 
has determined that this rate meets the corroboration criterion 
established in section 776(c) of the Act. Huafeng has raised arguments 
with respect to the reliability and relevance of this rate, which are 
addressed in the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 
1.

Final Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department stated its intent to 
rescind the administrative review with respect to the following 
companies because they all reported that they made no shipments during 
the POR.

 Clearwise Company Limited
 Dongguan Huangsheng Furniture Co., Ltd.\41\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \41\ Dongguan Huangsheng Furniture Co., Ltd.'s only sales made 
during the POR were covered by a new shipper review for the period 
January 1, 2009, through December 31, 2009. The new shipper review 
of this company was completed and therefore, these shipments are not 
subject to this administrative review. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture 
from the People's Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping 
Duty New Shipper Reviews, 76 FR 9747 (February 22, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Dongguan Mu Si Furniture Co. Ltd.
 Fleetwood Fine Furniture LP
 Hainan Jong Bao Lumber Co. Ltd/Jibbon Enterprise Co., Ltd.
 Shanghai Fangjia Industry Co., Ltd.
 Yeh Brothers World Trade Inc.
 Golden Well International (HK) Ltd.
 Zhejiang Tianyi Scientific and Educational Equipment Co., Ltd. 
(``Zhejiang Tianyi'') \42\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \42\ Zhejiang Tianyi's only sales made during the POR were 
covered by a new shipper review covering the period January 1, 2009, 
through June 30, 2009 and thus are not subject to this review. See 
Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China: Final 
Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 75 FR 44764 (July 
29, 2010).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    No parties commented on our intent to rescind. Because there is no 
information or argument on the record of the current review that 
warrants reconsidering our intent to rescind, we are rescinding this 
administrative review with respect to the above-listed companies.

Final Results of the Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average percentage margins 
exist for the POR:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance 
with the final results of this review. For assessment purposes, we 
calculated exporter/importer- (or customer) -specific assessment rates 
for merchandise subject to this review. Where appropriate, we 
calculated an ad valorem rate for each importer (or customer) by 
dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by 
the total entered values associated with those transactions. For duty-
assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess 
the resulting ad valorem rate against the entered customs values for 
the subject merchandise. Where an importer- (or customer) -specific 
assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), the 
Department will instruct CBP to assess that importer's (or customer's) 
entries of subject merchandise without regard to antidumping duties. We 
intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject 
merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate 
determined in these final results. The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash-Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rates shown for those 
companies; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC 
exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the 
most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise 
which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 216.01 percent; and (4) for 
all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received 
their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to 
the PRC exporters that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit 
requirements shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification of Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction 
of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed in these final results 
within five days of the date of public announcement of the final 
results to parties in this proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b). We are issuing and publishing these final results and 
notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: August 5, 2011.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
